This release fully resolves the issue, it is highly recommended that all users update to FoCal 3.2 MR1 when using macOS 12.3 and likely all future macOS releases. Users not updating will see unexpected and intermittent FoCal shut down within a few minutes of use.

The FoCal IQ link button now works for cameras as well as lenses.
